Open Lectures & Talks
Darwin Lecture Series 'In the second term of every academic year since 1986 Darwin College has organised a series of eight public lectures. Each series has been built around a single theme, approached in a multi-disciplinary way, and with each lecture prepared for a general audience by a leading authority on his or her subject ... The Darwin College Lectures are very popular, each attended by around 600 people, so you must arrive early to ensure a place. Stewards at the door follow a strict Admissions Policy to ensure fairness. An adjacent overflow theatre (with live TV coverage) is provided for those who cannot be seated in the main hall.'

'Darwin is a post-graduate college: the majority of our students are reading for Masters or PhD degrees. Darwin provides an international community in which graduate students, postdoctoral workers, senior visitors, and college fellows can interact with colleagues having the broadest spectrum of research interests. Darwin, like most Cambridge Colleges, is co-educational and has no restrictions on the subjects of study. It has 45 Professorial and Official Fellows, including a Master (the Head of House elected by the fellows), most of whom are University Teaching Officers in their subjects. There are also about 20 Research Fellows ... There are approximately 600 students ... A striking feature of the College is that half the students are from more than 50 overseas countries.'
